If You Don’t Feel Safe Returning to Campus, What Rights & Options Do You Have?

As you return to campus, you are likely wondering what options are available if you are at increased risk of COVID-19 complications or if you or a family member gets sick. Resigning is not your only option, nor should it be the first path you explore. In this webcast from the ATPE Member Legal Services Department, we discuss accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, paid and unpaid leave options, and more. 


Be sure to also check out our frequently updated COVID-19 FAQ and Resources page for more information about educators’ rights in this public health crisis, as well as distance learning and self-care resources.
